Tim Shieff Tim Shieff Vegan

We managed to catch up with the legend himself, Tim Shieff, known to some as Vegan Prince, the last man standing on Ninja Warrior and Human Timothy to many. Timothy Shieff is one of the most recognised UK advocates of a plant based diet, mostly known for being a professional freerunner, he has since expanded outside of that label and frees his mind and body in a number of disciplines. Tim now enjoys lots of running, yoga and generally moving the body. 

Athletically I like Conor McGregor (fighter) and Kilian Jornet (mountain runner) they are two ends of the athletic spectrum in my eyes. Fight and Flight

How long have you been vegan and why did you make the switch?

Been vegan for 5 years now. I realised that I thought I loved animals but was still eating them, once i saw the hypocrisy of this is stopped.

What advice would you give to somebody looking to go vegan?

Watch some documentaries and read some books, education at inception really helps you see the intelligence and common sense in it all.

What does your current training schedule look like?

Currently around 90% Yoga 10% running. My body has a lot of muscle memory of movement, right now im just sharpening the blade so to speak =]
 

Are you still raw and if so what is your daily diet?

Not raw eating cooked again, aiming for boiled and steamed veg only!

What age did you start free running?

I always did it from 2 years old I was climbing ladders and seeking freedom from environments. I understood more about it at 14 after I watched Jump London, then it really took off.

Who are some of your inspirations?

I have loads! Athletically I like Conor McGregor (fighter) and Kilian Jornet (mountain runner) they are two ends of the athletic spectrum in my eyes. Fight and Flight. Spiritually Sevan Bomar from innerversity. His Keymaker series of podcasts really helped my ascension.

 How often do you practice yoga?

Currently everyday for the first time in my life I’ve found a good rhythm with it.

What are your thoughts on the crazy new styles of yoga such as naked yoga and goat yoga?

I dont think naked yoga is crazy or new lol, goat yoga I havent heard of though! … haha just youtubed it, looks epic Id like a go, the goats seem fairly down with the whole thing!
